Time for one of my favorite parts of the week! Blogger Spotlight! This week I am captivated by the beauty and whimsy of ponyhunter. Her photos are a source of inspiration to many, and I am sure this is not the first place she has been featured. Take a look, and I am sure you will agree: when you need a dose of visual pick-me-up this will be your first stop.
Living in New Zealand and working as a model, this young beauty seems to have unlimited, gorgeous backgrounds and an endless supply of girlish clothes. I love the mint-green, sheer curtain as a backdrop. The soft lighting always captures a magical moment.
Happy Friday! It is definitely time for some more weekend inspiration! This beauty is the inspiration for millions of fashion blogs and was one of the first blogs I got really into years back. Meet Alix of The Cherry Blossom Girl! This fashion designer from Paris has somewhat of a dream life! You will know what I mean when you visit her amazing site. She has been blogging since 2007 and has evolved into one of the most influential fashion bloggers in the world. Take a look at some of her beautiful images below.
Alix captures romantic, soft focus pictures that make life look like a darling dream. Feminine and delicate, her amazing photography is the first thing that pops into my mind when I need something sweet. It’s like a fashion fairy tale for those of us girls who love pretty things and refuse to grow up!
Are these images inspiring you to do something special this weekend? Maybe you can make some homemade holiday decorations, take a stroll at dusk or enjoy tea with a favorite friend? Whatever you decide to do, make it your goal to capture the beauty around you as Alix does with every shot. The way the light streams through your room, a stack of old books, your grandmothers antique jewels. Whether you are into photography or not, at least take a mental note of the beauty that surrounds us all. Create a catalogue in your brain of all the little things that inspire you, then you can draw from it when life lacks a little luster.
Make sure to check out Alix’s blog and add her to your favorites because she is defintely not one you would want to miss. After only a week I had missed so much that I spent forever getting my fill of the confectionary sweetness of these shots! Keep up the good work, Alix! LuLu*s loves you!
You may already be familiar with this well-known blogging wonder. If not, let me take a moment to introduce you to one of my all- time favorite fashion bloggers. This is Rebecca of The Clothes Horse! This girl has made adorable dresses and tights with perfectly polished nails and fiery hair her trademark look. She always looks cute and comfy. When people are true to their individual aesthetic they always seem to stand out while looking at ease and that is the marker of true style.
Rebecca is the master of capturing the beauty of the outdoors. Whether on a rocky, seaside cliff or perched in a tree she makes it work and look easy! She always manages to get dynamic shots all by herself with just a tripod!
Rebecca blogs about traveling, art, fashion and much more. Throughout the years of reading her blog I have seen the beauty of many countries she visited all thanks to her artistic eye. One of my favorite features on her blog are the “Picture An Hour” series. Throughout the day she will snap a picture of a sometimes unexpected moment each hour to create a visual diary of a her day. So fun! Another one of my favorite features is “Detail of the Week”. Rebecca picks out an item that stands out and is special to her. I love reading about the fun pieces my favorite bloggers pick up. It gives me inspiration to add statement pieces into my own waredrobe!
Make sure to check out her blog, you will definitely be delighted by how much creative imagery and attention are put into it.
Need some cheer to brighten up your Monday? Don’t worry because I have some eye candy for you! Time for another round of my blog favorites! Meet Kelty, the artistic genius behind Steep Street, her site showcasing her multitude of talents! This “Jill-of-all trades” has many tricks up her sleeve including amazing photography, web design as well as printed goodies like books and stationary. She has many brilliantly shot photos including weddings, couples, portraits and famillies. While all her beautiful shots are breathtaking, my favorite are a weekly series called T.G.I.H. These are fun and fancy photoshoots where Kelty and her twin sister, Hannah, get together to create to perfect shots.
Hannah’s fiery, red hair and porcelain skin add the perfect edge to every photo while Kelty’s talented eye frames each photo brilliantly. Hannah is a chameleon of sorts and is able to play so many different, magical characters.
Make sure to check out this site! You can enjoy some beautiful imagery and appreciate the talent of the lovely Kelty! Also, make sure to visit her Etsy shop for some handmade goodies. Next time you are in need of an amazing photographer in the Boston area, this is your girl!
